scrumptious spicy chicken wings

Once you have it, you will be hooked!

Last night, I served Pierce’s spicy chicken wings and the wings exceeded everyone’s expectations!

I ordered them a few days ago: $35 for a tray of 50 chicken wings. I know they are beyond yummy since I had a few wings at a summer party. So when I found out I can order and have them delivered – it’s like Santa’s elves and Cinderella's little helpers are truly helping me get a few chores done, without a hitch!

Before serving them for dinner, I did the following:

- Preheat the oven to 300 (convection)
- Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Put the chicken wings – single layer
- Heat for 8-10 minutes.

The aroma of the spices lingered around the house. Before I could even finish removing the chicken wings off the tray, Dad and honey were already in the kitchen waiting to have a taste.

What they didn’t realize is that: there’s no such thing as just having a taste! As soon as you have had a taste, you gotta have another wing…and another, and another! And before you know it; your plate has 10 chicken bones!

Honey does not like finger foods. He had always eaten BBQ ribs and chicken with fork and knife, so to my surprise, Honey was eating with his fingers! The chicken wings are best enjoyed sans the silverware!

Honey asked, “So where did you get these chicken wings?”

I asked, “Why? Do you like them?”

Honey replied, “In the scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best. I rate it a 12!”

You can tell the wings are made with love! They’re fresh, juicy, meaty and just scrumptious!

(Pierce’s chicken wings are spicy. It comes with an extra cup of sauce – only if you want an additional kick. For those who want to tone down the spiciness, you can dip the wings in a ranch or blue cheese dressing. A great combo with the wings is an ice cold beverage).

‘tis the season to be jolly and for moms to be superbly exhausted! So any little help, make this week a little less tiring.

Today is a special day. It’s Honey’s birthday. It’s not just any birthday, as he commented. Today is a numerical phenomenon that will only happen once in his lifetime!

Being born in 1966, today, the 22nd of the month, my husband is 44!
And what are the odds that 44 plus 22 = 66!

A day of doubles...double delight!

And since December gets really hectic between shopping, birthdays, kids getting sick, preparing for the holidays and school winter concerts (concerts formerly known as Christmas shows); it would be a treat for a mom like me, if I can find ways to easily and reasonably cross one thing of my daily routine.

That’s when an idea clicked in! Instead of cooking all the meals for his pre-birthday dinner, why not order something new? So I did. And the end result was delicious!

(If you have left-overs, you can reheat and will still be delicious! Pierce's chicken wings will definitely be part of our family gatherings.)

Enjoy the holiday season everyone!
Share LOVE, you'll get more of it in return.

Completed my first 16 Week IsaBody Challenge: Believe You Have A Purpose

My family is what matters most to me.  I’m 51 and a mother of 4 (ages 14 – 26). I wanted to be healthier, more active and stronger not just for me, but for the people I love.  I wanted to set an example for my family that we each possess the tools to master our wellness and vitality. I've always been petite except when I was pregnant ( when I gained an average of 50 pounds per pregnancy - 4 times!) Over the years I had tried various diet and exercise regimens, and I did enjoy a degree of success, but the results were not to the level I hoped for, and they were somewhat short lived.   Achieving stable, long-lasting results proved stubbornly elusive.    Then when I hit menopause everything became more difficult.    My body stopped cooperating altogether, and I was constantly grumpy. My waist and hips expanded and I found myself napping in the afternoons.    I started to accept the idea that there would be this new, less vibrant version of me. I just completed my P

Immigration and Family: Will my mom ever get to see my daughter walk down the aisle

Last year when my father passed away in the Philippines, I went home and took some time to visit the U.S. Embassy in Manila to ask what the options are for my mother to return to the U.S. The consul reminded me of the 10-year travel ban. That on or after November 8, 2015 — not earlier – or 10 years after my mom, was deported in 2005 for overstaying her visa, I can email the U.S. Embassy and inquire about my mother’s approved petition. I asked if I need to file another petition, and she informed me I didn’t have to. I asked if I could… and she stopped me and said to ask everything on or after November 8, 2015. This is where I am, and where my thoughts are drifting as I celebrate this month my 16th American birthday. I am counting the months, the weeks and the days. My daughter is getting married in January 2016 and I would love to have my entire family, especially my mother, to be here when that momentous occasion happens.

SPICE-up a young child's development: social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional

Children are the precious gems of a family. When they’re young and innocent, they are like sponges that willingly and quickly absorb any knowledge and emotion. That’s why at an early age, we encourage our children to read, be creative, be happy and feed their curiosity. With all the technology and instant gratification that children get from playing video or computer games, asking a child to read a good book has been a challenge for some parents .     “Your children are not your children.       They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.       They come through you but not from you,       And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.       You may give them your love but not your thoughts,        For they have their own thoughts.        You may house their bodies but not their souls,        For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,        which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.” -                     Kahlil Gibr

Helping others surpass their goals and expectations

"It's not about the end goal. It's who you become by consistently pushing to the edge of your limits." - Robin Sharma Do you ever wonder why you stumble on new things?  Do you ever wonder why unsuspecting strangers cross your path? Do you ever wonder why your mind takes you to a direction you didn't think exist? I was walking to StarBucks to meet my husband when I noticed a sign...

Still shaky, skidded in snow, but so blessed my guardian angels are looking after me!

"Never again wonder, what to be thankful for..."   - Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life It’s yet another snowy day in New Jersey. Beautiful, yes but dangerous! In line with my goal for this month is to get back on schedule. I got up around 4am to get my 15yo ready for his Model United Nations conference. (Thankful that our neighbor offered to drive him to school by 5:30am ) I got my 9yo ready for school and I'm thankful that my other neighbor offered to drive him to school. I then drove my husband to the train station to Manhattan. I decided to stop by the Community Center and decided to run a fast 5K on the treadmill. I was 1 mile short because I was so sweaty and hot. (Note to self: dress lightly next time) While cooling down inside the car, I read Day 14’s chapter of Rick Warren's the “Purpose Driven Life” book. I felt really good because it just reminded me that there is always something to be thankful for no matter how awful yo
